The Square Mile Project

Public Domain

There's probably a good story on every square mile of the Earth. 

And Pat Acklin and her students went looking for those stories. 

Acklin teaches at Southern Oregon University, and she led students through something called "The Square Mile Project."

Students researched the history and events of a square mile of land within Jackson County. 

Acklin checks in to talk about the project and its findings.
